The Thanksgiving Visitor
In the story, the narrator Buddy has his worst nightmare come true when his friend and relative Miss Sook invites the school bully, Odd Henderson, to the Thanksgiving meal. This simple act casts a pall over what was supposed to be a magical and wonderful day for Buddy. This story is not moralistic by any means, but it teaches a great lesson about kindness that I think is what draws me back to it every year. It's a lesson we all need.
Wishing you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving!
